Students at a Williamsbridge school are celebrating Black History Month every day by just walking through the halls.
Angela Moore, Barry Curtis and other teachers at Leaders of Tomorrow Middle School partnered with community members to celebrate black history differently from in years past.
The halls are filled with different lessons and figures from black history that in turn teach lessons at every turn. Parts of the display were even done by students.
Different hallways have different themes -- like the civil rights movement and black educators.
"I was happy to see a lot of women in the wall because usually we see a lot of black men, so I was really happy to see a lot of women on the wall and how they were powerful and helped with this change in society," says student Stori Edwards.
The reactions from students have brought tears to the eyes of Moore.
"It is really good to know that it had an impact on them and that they are going to walk with this info the rest of their lives," says Moore.
